|Streetfood Tycoon: A Cool Game App That's Smokin' Hot!|
by Remo Aver
There's an exciting Pinoy-developed game that suits technopreneurial minds in the app market today: Streetfood Tycoon.
Developed and released by Filipino, Erick Garayblas of Kuyi Mobile, it has even reached the Top 5 of most downloaded game apps in the UK. Gaining a lot of puplarity, it has already breached the 2 million download mark.
Streetfood Tycoon is an iphone game application that can be downloaded for free from the Itunes App Store. It is a management game where you have to fill in the customer’s order by combining the right ingredients while at the same time dealing with restocking, buying better ingredients and upgrading facilities.
Here's the game description lifted from the blog BlancNotes...
The game is easy to play. The main objective is to earn enough coins by selling food. When a customer approaches the cart they will tell you their order through a picture bubble. You just need to tap all the ingredients as shown correctly in the picture to create an order. You then need to drag the order to the customer to complete the sale. In case you mess up and want to start over, you can tap the trash at the bottom left side of the screen to scrap your previous creation. There’s a time limit for every order, if you don’t respond right away, the customer will not accept the order and leave in a huff. There are also those little things like stocks running low, food spills, and left over crumbs that need cleaning-up that had to be addressed right away to avoid getting into a fix. You can only restock one item at a time, so you need to make quick decisions too based on what your business needs at the moment. As you progresses in the game, you’ll be able to move to 4 new locations. You will also be able to upgrade your cart to serve more and better quality food (aside from corn dog and fries) such as kwek kwek and fishballs.
Streetfood Tycoon can be downloaded using iPhone/iPad with iOS 4.03 or higher. To download, go to the iTunes App Store.
